    Oh my god, the bus depot story has split my sides!

    I spat my dinner all over my screen when I saw that diagram PMSL.

    The bus driver thing happens all the time in North London, they don't care and so many times I have been sat on the other side of the road like a spoon with the oncoming traffic waving their hands at me.

    The diagram rocks!

    Bloke I knew was a bus driver, he said he used to drive straight past a stop if it full of old people and raining, and he used to brake sharply to make the oldies fall over. He worked in Kingsbury. So it's no suprise they pull out on motorists.

    Still love the diagram.

    It is funny how people are. Iv been driving cars for 6 years and riding motorcycles for 3 with countless times being cut up etc and have only gone mad once when a woman rather dangerously wouldn't let me filter, which I didn't react well too when slowing down to a stop on a busy A road. Very unlike me, usually I just get on with it and not moan. The reactions some of you guys give are kind of worrying, and if that's how you really feel, you need other ways to vent your angers and stress

    Yeah, if only there was some kind of forum where you could go to rant and rave.

    I take absolutely no notice of speed limits bar built up areas esp where kids are.Anywhere else is open season.I drive to the conditons of the road.If I can only do 20, then 20 it is.If I can do five fold and above then so be it.Speed limits are there for the majority of morons that cannot drive or anticipate hazards.These are the same people that have to be told not to put there hand in a fire or theyll get burnt.(go eugenics!).Back to the op, if someone wont move in front of you, just undertake them!!A calculated move and away you go.No stress.

    I took that stance a long time ago after living in South Africa where undertaking was then legal, so no stress or worries, why get chest all puffed up, go round, let them flash or toot horn, they're the ones that can be all puffy, I'll just drive on forgetting I ever saw them in the way lmfao.

    Undertaking shouldn;t be illegal really - at end of the day no matter what lane you are in and what lane you want to get in you always have to look all around you before changing lanes so effectively if someone pulls accross left and you are possitioned in their blind spot and they hit you it's their fault anyway no matter what speed you are doing unless of course there are witnesses to say you were doing way to fast during undertaking.

    The problem is people don't 'expect' cars to come up faster on their left hand side when theoretically it isn;t dangerous in the slightest.

    I can see where you are coming from but unfortunately the spee dlimit tsi there for all drivers mainly due to the road it'self. It's not easy to judge someones speed at teh best of times and if people think it's safe to cross and you are going to fast then effectively you are at fault. People, bikes, cars pulling out can happen anywhere. Oh and you'll get points on your license if you caught.

    Driving down the motorway at night doing '70mph' is effectively daft because it is a clear road but the limit will never change because you're reactions are normally slower at night then in the day due to lack of vision. I would effectively slag you off for admitting to not following speed limits but even though I have stated the points in the above paragraph, I stil understand where you are coming from.
